Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted at The Broke and The Bookish where they post a list idea and everyone is welcome to post the list with their own answers. This week the theme is Top Ten 2014 Debuts I’m Excited For.
This is the debut I chose as being most excited for in The 2013 End of Year Book Survey. It has aliens, a romance (no hints to a love triangle in the blurb!), a witch-hunt, blogging and a mystery. With hooks like that it was always going to draw me in!
Aliens | Romance| Blogging
I’m a total wimp when it comes to scary books (and my fear of horror movies is so extreme I even avoid the covers), BUT The Merciless sounds so good I’m just going to have to try and face my fears!
Teeanage girls | Possession | Exorcism
I absolutely loved taking part in sci-fi month, and it sent me on a bit of a sci-fi binge! I’m really hoping to keep expanding my sci-fi horizons next year, and I’m excited to find a new YA sci-fi author.
Dystopian | Ethical dilemma | Kickass heroine
After seeing Landry park described as a ‘nuclear Gone with the wind’ I was too curious NOT to add it to my TBR list! I love the idea of the Victorian-esque setting despite the fact it’s set in the future, and I’m really curious to see how that developed.
Dystopia | Historical feel in a future world
Yet another dystopian with a blurb I just couldn’t resist!
“On the mysterious island of Nil, the rules are set. You have one year. Exactly 365 days–to escape, or you die.”
Amnesia | Survival | Romance
I’m a little nervous about Somebody Up There Hates You because everyone adored The Fault in Our Stars and while I liked it, I didn’t love it. I love the voice in the blurb though, and I’m so intrigued by the characters, so I’m curious and cautiously optimistic!
Cancer | Contemporary | Romance
Described on panmacmillan’s website as “Part Brothers Grimm, part Buffy with a dash of Cassandra Clare,” I was never going to be able to resist Banished. I don’t usually read very much urban fantasy, but I’m excited about this one.
Urban Fantasy | Faerie | Romance
Dear Killer has really mixed reviews on goodreads right now, but I think I’m just too curious to resist reading it! A killer as the main character? In a YA book WITHOUT ROMANCE? This is too unique for me to pass up.
Murder | Mystery | Thriller
This sounds amazing. Gretchen has grown up the darling of her family, and her uncle – Adolf Hitler. When forced to face some uncomfortable truths, Gretchen must decide whether her loyalties truly lie with the family she’s always known and loved.
Historical fiction | Nazi Germany
A second creepy-ish sounding title for the self-professed wimp. The swamp in the centre of the village has always been creepy, but when Sterling’s brother goes missing in it, things become even more disturbing. Months later a girl appears from the swamp determined to take over Sterling’s brother’s life. Most disturbing of all? No one except Sterling seems to even remember her brother existed…
Southern Gothic | Thriller | Fantasy | Mystery
